    Hi Tiddywazza, (I tried to add a screenshot but unfortunately I cant do it on this site.)

    I was trying to explain, how to explain to a guest how to uses internet to find and book a room directly with the motel and get a better price!

    1)in your search bar type
    accommodation London (for example)
    2)then at least 4 written websites will come up (depending on which OTA is paying the highest adwords for the day)
    bypass all the written sites and come down to google maps and click on it
    3) the map will then open up and show you all the accomm providers for that town/city, they were highlighted by little red beds, now they are blue with the tariff.
    4) click on the tariff that takes your fancy in the area that you wish to stay, and the motel’s details come up. You enter in your preferred dates, and it lists the tariffs for approx 5 OTAs.
    5) then ring the number provided and say “I’ve just found a room for $X will you match it. THAT is when YOU say sure then you give them your best price!!
    Hope this helps
    cheers
